BravadoGT: The Atlantic
BravadoGT: No, Mitt Romney Doesn't Really Want to Kill Off FEMA, say right-wing nutjobs at....The Atlantic?
m1ke: North East folks: don't forget to get your FEMA credit debit card! That shiat was dope.
soj4life: All this article shows is that the gop house is holding our country back and they need to be voted out of office. The big stuff that Romney wants is the same crap that Dubya got and look at the result of that.
doyner: If Romney wins then this country is essentially getting what it deserves: The lasting, painful effects of willful ignorance.
Fart_Machine: States are already first responders. The whole point of FEMA is to provide them any aid if it reaches beyond what they can handle. The Romney campaign has a knack for using lots of words to say precisely nothing.
DjangoStonereaver: You just know that the rabid right-wing conspiracy nuts (AKA the GOP's base) are now thinking that theZOG has got to Rmoney and implanted him with the Mark of the Beasttm brain control chip.
Cletus C.: Vodka Zombie: Cletus C.: Has Obama declared this an act of nature yet?Or is he blaming it on some incendiary hurricane-chasing youtube video?You're trying too hard. Go to bed.Perhaps you're right. This is no time to joke. Businesses Obama built are being destroyed.
papatex: I, for one, would love less government control. If this means less help when in bad times, well, so be it.Anyway to cut costs.
Citrate1007: What is more disturbing to me is not that he flip flopped, but that his mouth breathing base thought it was a good idea to disband FEMA in the first place.
adamgreeney: The sarcasm and satire of Fark is now becoming actual reality. Fark will tip so far into satire that it will come back around to serious news commentary......
jasimo: My first thought:"A nationally-known Republican who may well run in 2016 is praising Obama's job performance a week before the election on a nationally broadcast morning show?!" (I think in long, comma-free sentences)
AFKobel: Governor Romney, there are times when we're fifty states and there are times when we're one country, and have national needs. And the way I know this is that Massachusetts didn't fight Germany in World War II or establish civil rights. You think states should do the governing wall-to-wall. That's a perfectly valid opinion. But your state of Massachusetts got $12.6 billion in federal money last year - from Nebraskans, and Virginians, and New Yorkers, and Alaskans, with their Eskimo poetry. 12.6 out of a state budget of $32 billion. I'm supposed to be using this time for a question, so here it is: Can we have it back, please?
Fart_Machine: BravadoGT: No, Mitt Romney Doesn't Really Want to Kill Off FEMA, say right-wing nutjobs at....The Atlantic?So what your article states is that Romney left enough wiggle room to talk out of both sides of his face again. Well that's quite an endorsement.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: I really want to vote for Mitt Romney
Antimatter: Piss poor journalism at work.
Lost Thought 00: Lets just put every politics submission on the main page for the next week. Should be fun

Well that's quite an endorsement.At least it was honest, unlike Salon, who misstates the question John King asked Romney in order to fit the template of their argument here. in TFA Salon writes:In a GOP primary debate in June of last year, moderator John King asked Romney if he would let states take on the responsibilities of FEMA, which was "about to run out of money." "Absolutely," Romney replied. "And every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better... We cannot - we cannot afford to do those things," he added.When, in actuality, King asked Romney if, in light of FEMA's serious budget problems, he would let states take on MORE of the responsibilities of FEMA.That's a different question, and changes the meaning of the answer. You can see the actual video of the exchangeWhen, in actuality, King asked Romney if, in light of FEMA's serious budget problems, he would let states take on MORE of the responsibilities of FEMA.That's a different question, and changes the meaning of the answer.
